Golight Stryker HID installed

On our old Toyota FJ Cruiser I ran 2 Golight Strykers mounted on the roof rack. I had intended to use these lights as off road lights but they did not function well for this. One of the lights has been upgraded to HID and the beam is very concentrated. This works well as a spot light but does not have enough fill for use while driving. The HID upgrade is only available from MagnaLight.

On our new FJ, I chose to install just the HID Stryker to function as a spot light. The light is installed in front of the roof rack directly on the roof over the driver position. This installation required a commitment due to the holes that I needed to drill in the roof.

I completed this installation while I still had the roof liner removed which helped facilitate the job.

The light includes 2 wireless remotes. The first is attached to the dash under my rechargeable flashlight. The other remote is handheld and can be used when outside the FJ.


Time: 1.5 hours

    I have a set of these lights on one of our boats that we have NEVER used once. I would Love to put these on my roof rack. Can you supply me with a little more info on your previous install where you had them in the roof rack and how you ran the wires and where you ran them to? I’m so nit an electrician, but have a friend who is if I tell him what I’m looking for. I’m just not prepared to drill through my roof to mount them.

    Thanks for any input!
